The Hazards of Skinny Dipping by Alyssa Rose Ivy Paperback, 248 pages Published May 17th 2013 by CreateSpace Age Group: New Adult Contemporary Romance Series: Hazards #1 Source: ecopy from Author Summary: This isn’t a deep book about first loves or self-discovery. If you want a book like that, I’d be happy to recommend one, but I don’t have that kind of story to tell. Instead my story is about rash decisions and finding out that your dream guy is bad in bed.

Oh, and it’s also the story of my freshman year of college and realizing Mr. Right might have been there all along.
